Re: Why Mint 14 should rock more than it actually does

There is the main problem to me : can you say the 'distro will only get better' when you experience so many regressions as listed above ? Yes , the system has improved in itself, that's my opinon too. But attention to small details can make big differences and shouldn't be neglected. For the most p...

Re: Why Mint 14 should rock more than it actually does

I've had quite a few annoyances as well since upgrading (or downgrading however you want to look at it) to Mint 14 but I accept that Cinnamon & Nemo are both still in early development, smb is a problem for me as well, streaming video from a network share has been at best a joke, I posted the pr...

Re: Cannot install ubuntuone

Hi again

That sorted it thank you, What I don't understand is I had already installed ubuntuone-control-panel-qt from synaptic and it didn't show up in the menu and since running from the terminal it is showing, anyway the important thing is it's working.

Many thanks

Re: Whats happened to .gvfs

Hi Altair

Code: Select all

Why did they ( and I'm guessing this was done by our Gnome Overlords ) do this? Because they can.
who are we to question their wisdom :)

Re: What do you not like about Cinnamon?

The only complaints I have is the menu button delay (I've counted up to 3 seconds on occasions) it really is quite annoying and places disappearing form the menu list, other than that I think it's a great DE that can only get better

Re: Login for Children

Do you know of a good internet filter ? I don't know much about internet filters, I'm generally with her when she's on the PC so I've never felt there was any need for a filter, It also depends what browser you're using, I remember using a chrome extension called chrome nanny or something like that...

Re: why you switched to linux ?

My initial reason was purely curiosity, I installed Ubuntu just to see what it was all about and because I was bored, and no it wasn't an easy ride but I stuck with it and eventually curiosity led to a better understanding of not only how a computer works but more importantly for me a better underst...

Re: Newbie can't set up an internet connection

Hi Raven I'm really struggling with this, but firstly do you have any other devices connected to your router and if so are they working ? if not it might be a good idea to reboot your router and try again, also you should have a network icon on your panel if you have open it up and make sure wired a...

Hi Raven I'm really not the right one to help you I,m no where near the most qualified here, but I have set up a wifi myself so until someone more qualified jumps on board I'll try my best.

Hi Raven I think you will need to be more specific about your problem ie what's actually happening when you try to connect, what kind of setup you have , are you trying to connect through a wireless router or ethernet etc then hopefully someone more knowledgable than me can help you Good luck Graeme
